I just bought a 7100 from B&H about 3 weeks ago, and I was shooting
about a week ago when suddenly, the camera became unresponsive.
I wasn't shooting multiple photos such that there would be a buffering issue.

I couldn't turn it off--the camera was stuck on (or appeared so, looking at the
info screen on the top of the camera). The shutter release button didn't do anything
when pressed.
Nothing happened when I turned the main, sub command dial, or multi-select dial.
Nothing changed after popping out the SD cards and then popping them back in
(using Sandisk 45mb/sec).
The camera returned to normal after I took out the battery and then put it back in.


I also had another incident where the multi-select button didn't move the
focus box for about a minute (not associated with a buffer issue, as I hadn't
been taking multiple photos in a short time).

When the camera was shipped, it was packed at the bottom of the large box
with no padding, and there's a good chance that the camera got knocked around
when the UPS guys toss boxes around. The 70-200 f4 lens that was also in the
box is going back because of a VR issue.

I am somewhat concerned about the odd behavior of the camera, and am
considering returning it for an exchange, since it is still within the 30 days of purchase.

Has anyone had this issue? Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
